****

you do COMPREHEND THAT RIGHT???

and you DO UNDERSTAND these are not meant as GOD saying "he doesn't call" people to marriage or not to marriage

always interesting the spin spin spin many will place on Holy Scripture to sell their WARPED denominational views

Paul said his judgment is that a widow will be happier if she stays single. 1 Corinthians 7:39-40 So, possibly you can be happier by staying single, though you have not been married. The grass can be greener, when you look from a distance. Also, if I love others as myself, I can be just as happy for others who are married with families, so this is as good as me being married (c: except . . . I don't have to pay the bills (c:

Jed said > "We all have our faults and marriage takes alot of compromising on both parts." It can be good that compromises only mean we give up something, in order to please God, not in order to give in to each other's selfish demands.

How about thinking that God is still preparing the person which God think is the best man for you?In this way,you will not loose patience in waiting.It is worth waiting for as God also prepares you to meet your husband to be.
There is hope in God.Love doesn't know no age."But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well..Matthew 6:33

FAITH is all you need to receive all good things from God. Happieme28 quoted Isa.34:15-16 in one of the current blogs recently where God stated, "HE will ensure birds/animals shall not lack their mates". In Matt.6:26 the Lord Jesus told us that we are better in God's sight than birds. Therefore note that God cannot fail in giving you what is good for you.

Will these do for starters, Rhonda?//

after you disregard these holy scriptures, please tell us all the verses from holy scripture that specifically states that God does ALWAYS call us to marriage.

(then, in the conservation of "Does Man Sleep At Death" please explain the parable of Lazarus instead of shooting blanks in this question.)

I don't know if what I'm going to say is really for you or not, but it applies to alot of women who have remained unmarried. So here it goes and if it's not for you then please don't take this the wrong way.

If you're looking for a perfect man, it isn't going to happen. No man is perfect. We all have our faults and marriage takes alot of compromising on both parts. Some women are looking so hard for the perfect man, that they overlook the man who is perfect for them. I know some people will tell you not to "settle", but unless you want to be lonely you're whole life, you're going to have to settle for less than perfect. You wont find the man of your dreams.

Hi, Busi (c: God bless you. Yes, I would say fasting can be limiting our attention to what we want, instead of first to being in tune with God in His peace ruling us (Colossians 3:15).

And how you really are as a person is deeply setting a magnetic field for what and who gets attracted to you, deeper than what we show. If you use outward show to get a guy, you can get a fool for outward show and the pleasure it may promise, instead of the treasure of "a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (in 1 Peter 3:4) We need to have what attracts people to God and not just to us (c:

Hi Busi,

I will be 43 next month and like you am waiting on God for my husband. God has not forgotten you and he does not hold our past errors against us. God will bring someone into your life at "His" right time. Just keep busy serving God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength and in due course he will bring his choice in your life. Be encouraged - God remembers his word in Genesis 2v18. God bless you
---The_Believer on 3/11/12


Just a thought,men may want a woman who relates to a husbands needs and support him in what he does,the help mate which is suited to him,but the first thing which attracts a man is a womans looks. Take stock of yourself,how do you look. Maybe a makeover would help,a new hairstyle,lessons on how to do makeup,and on what clothes suit you. It never hurts to make the package reflect the beauty of the Godly woman inside.
---Darlene_1 on 3/11/12


There is hope as long as you are alive,a couple just wed who are 95 and 98 years old. Remember though,it is better to be single than to be in a bad marriage. The Bible says to be content. Live in every moment for the Lord and trusting whatever good thing he has for you no one on earth can keep it from you. Just a little suggestion,maybe you are doing too much praying for a husband and need to do more praising God for hearing your prayers. The Bible says God inhabits the praises of his people. Just be happy in the Lord either way with a husband or without.
---Darlene_1 on 3/10/12


Busi: Here's an out in the open (in your face) secret many women don't take seriously or ignore when it comes to finding a husband. God said it first, man needs help! (G2:18) All the knights in shining armour, you women seek, need help too! :) Therefore, like Ruth (in the Bible), develop within yourself a virtuous woman "helper spirit" & you'll stand head, & shoulders above a field of other women who don't have a clue. Godly men looking for a wife will see that in you, will pay attention & be attracted to you! God bless!!! :)
---Leon on 3/10/12


I'm now 43, Is the still hope for me?
---Busi on 3/9/12

YES there is hope for you
My advise to you is be prapared.
Be the woman that God would have you to be, to reeive the man that God will have you to marry

God does not always call us to marriage
*****

really? than please provide all verses FROM Holy Scripture that specifically STATE "GOD does not always call us to marriage"

many marry in their 50's - 70's and well beyond

instead of fasting for what you want begin fasting to grow in understanding of GODS TRUTH let go of your wants and focus on GOD HE already KNOWS what you desire

write out in detail what your ideal husband would be ...become involved in activities that will allow you to meet single men of character ...and let friends and family members know of your desire to find a husband ...many women have married in their 40's and gone on to have happy healthy children too ...there is always hope
---Rhonda on 3/10/12


God does not control every little aspect of our lives.
Some things we do completely on our own.Marry ,have or don't have children,find our own vocation,protect ourselves from harm,mode of dress, place of residence etc..
The onus is on us to "seek 1st the Kingdom" not rely on other people's influence! IMHO!
---1st_cliff on 3/10/12


Busi, you're not the first woman to post something like this here.

Really, do you expect marriage to fill all your needs and make you happy?

If you think so, go back and read all the posts here from women who never say anything nice about their husbands at all.

One even mentioned how she found her husband physically repulsive.

Think about it.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/10/12


Yes, be content with Jesus first, always and at all times, and let your desires be made know up to God: and be content knowing that you are letting God have his perfect will for your life 24/7, whether you are joined with a man or whether you are living singly with the Lord.
